Nintendo adds five new Sega Genesis games to its Switch Online Expansion Pack


Nintendo has expanded its expansion pack for the Switch, adding five new Sega Genesis titles at the most expensive tier of its online subscription service. Those titles are Changed Beast, ToeJam & Earl, Dynamite Headaddy, Sword of Vermilion, and Thunder Force II.

The Expansion Pack subscription tier costs $49.99 per year for an individual plan or $79.99 for a family plan (compared to $19.99 / $34.99 for a regular Switch Online plan). For the extra money, subscribers get access to a larger back catalog of games. Both levels feature classic NES and Super NES titles such as the The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario World while the expansion pack adds games from the Nintendo 64 (such as Super Mario 64) and the Sega Genesis (known as the Sega Mega Drive outside of North America).

Other Sega Genesis titles available in the expansion pack include: Golden Ax, Streets of Rage 2, Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Ecco The Dolphin, Phantasy Star IV, and Castlevania Bloodline.
